“Together Forever – A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular” will boast dazzling pyrotechnics, memorable music, the theme of friendship. Guests will be invited on an emotional journey that begins when Pixar characters meet each other for the first time. The new spectacular will showcase new-found friends setting out on adventures and overcoming obstacles together as they form life-long friendships. The story will be brought to life with projections on some iconic locations throughout the park such as Sleeping Beauty Castle, the water screens of the Rivers of America, the façade of “it’s a small world” and the buildings of Main Street, U.S.A. Better sit down for this one, the new nighttime spectacular will even feature a special flyover by Buzz Lightyear at Sleeping Beauty Castle!!

Also beginning on April 13, the incredibly popular “Paint the Night” parade will return, only this time, to Disney California Adventure park.
